How many times have you noticed the aluminum cans that litter the side of the highways? It doesn’t look very nice does it? Well, the great news is, you can help and you can make great bucks at the same time. But the work is time consuming and hard on the back bending down to pick these valuable pieces of money laying around everywhere. It really can get tiresome doing it yourself, but being in this business, does not mean you have to be the one that collects the cans!
People just love their soft drinks. And drinks that come in the aluminum cans are quick and easy for little league games, family reunions and everyday use. They cool quickly and you don’t need a glass. And the aluminum in the cans is recyclable. When you collect them and take them to a recycling area, they will pay you for the cans.
There are lots of ways to collect the cans, beginning in your own home. Provide a separate container to put the cans in so that you do not have to go through the garbage to get them. Volunteer to pick up the cans at school and after church functions. Go to the local parks and check out the trash. Some parks already provide a separate container for cans; see what they do with them. Take walks along the roadside and collect the cans. Speak to the people in your neighborhood, you may find that while people like the idea of saving the aluminum cans for recycling, most of them do not follow through. If you would be willing to provide them with a separate container, or maybe green colored trash bags, they would gladly give you their cans.
These are all ways to get volume cans, but why do all that work yourself, when a little organization would see you making some real money professionally training people to do it. First do it yourself to get experienced and adept at all the places you can find this valuable commodity. Then once you know how to best bring in volume quantity, train people and pay them cash at your door, while you collect the full price value at the depot. This type of attitude will serve you well and building this type of business can really pay off.
You may find that aluminum cans recycling business ideas can include other items as well, and lots of people will co-operate with you, they want to do their part, they do not want to contend with going to a recycling area.
